Hello fellow Nikonians,

I just recently purchased a D5000 and stumbled across this forum while searching the web. I've never owned a d-SLR so I hope to gain some knowledge from the forums. I purchased the camera for work/personal use, and partially because I use adobe creative suite daily for my job (Marketing/Graphics). I'm sure the D5000 will be a nice compliment for my graphics and marketing work. I'm not real sure all of what is discussed in the forums but I imagine that a lot of good information is shared here. If anybody has any suggestions for what accessories I should have starting out please share. Right now in my pack I have the D5000 with the stock 52mm 18-55 lens, Nikon D5000 digital field guide (book), UV filter, Polarized filter, and Neutral Density filter. Future purchases: Tripod & 8-Point filter. I have a very tight budget...life of a recent college grad lol! So be easy on me!

Looking forward to learning and taking great shots!
